Light Accumulations Expected Monday

Our next chance for snow will come on Monday as a Clipper System originating from far northern Canada moves through.  We should expect light snow and flurries to move through starting at noon and continuing off and on through the early evening hours.  Most of our area will see a trace to a couple tenths of an inch.  Areas to the North and East could see up to 1/2 an inch.  

The predominant flow of air masses and weather systems right now is coming from the Northwest and when storms approach from those areas, they typically have less moisture associated with them.  The Northwest flow is expected to change later next week to more of a west to east flow, giving us additional chances for snow that could tap gulf moisture - the source region for more significant snows.  Temperatures over the next couple of weeks will be at or a little below normal - supporting increased chances for snow as well.   Have a great start to your work week!
